Science in Action!

The purposes of scientific investigation and discovery are to satisfy humankind’s quest for knowledge and understanding and to preserve and enhance the quality of the human experience. Therefore, as a result of science instruction, students will be able to apply scientific concepts, skills, and processes to everyday experiences. Our goal is for Mrs. Ackenbom's Littles to experience the richness and excitement of scientific discovery of the natural world through the collaborative quest for knowledge and understanding. Here we are outside Crozet Elementary searching for our spring treasures in recycled egg cartons. This week, we investigated how plants and seeds get around our land by animals, wind, water, and of course...people!

Little Ponies Telling Time, counting money and measuring on Cinco de Mayo!

We are focusing on learning the parts of a clock and telling time to the hour and half hour. We are enjoying using manipulatives to tell time and will also continue our place value and measurement units as well to strengthen those particular skills. They really have learned so much this year and are still growing!

It’s time to buy school supplies?!


We know it’s only April, but our online school supply store is open for business! You can pre-order next year’s supplies right now for 2016/17. All you have to do is visit www.1stDaySchoolSupplies.com. 1st Day School Supplies kits are the exact school supplies your teachers requested and are approved by the school. It is more cost effective than Amazon and supplies are delivered directly to your child’s classroom! Buying your child’s school supplies online will also help raise money to provide school supply kits for students who are unable to purchase them. Deadline is June 30th!
